PLAY GAMES AND LEARN ENGLISH IN A FUN WAY
It might be boring to study English in only one formal way for a long time. Using different methods can accelerate your learning process and also you will enjoy learning which will be very motivating. Playing language games is one of these exciting ways that even native speakers love to play and improve their skills such as boosting vocabulary range and other language-related skills. Here we introduce some interesting games that are perfect for learning English.
Some people prefer to play games alone. Crosswords and Quizzes are suitable for this group of people. Now let’s see how they are done.
There are different types of quizzes based on the level of each learner. You can find them on different websites or install their application on your cellphone. Since you can do them over and over, notice your progress.
Newspapers, magazines, or different websites contain one or more crosswords. The grids and small black and white squares shape a crossword puzzle. According to the given clue, you should place the word in the correct direction to fill the whole puzzle. Doing this puzzle will expand the range of vocabulary and also it can improve your comprehension.
Unlike the first group, the second group includes the ones who enjoy playing games with others. Scrabble and Charades games are very useful for them.
In this game, you can improve your vocabulary and spelling skills. You are supposed to use the letters to form the words on a board and make tiles. By adding letters to the existing words you can make new ones which is a great way to learn prefixes and suffixes. This is a very popular game around the world and it is also available as an application. This is a fun game to be played with friends anywhere you want and you may find it in other languages, too.
This is another game that you can get together with your friends and enjoy playing as well as improving your comprehension skills. In this game, you are given a card on which the name of a film, book, song, place, TV show, or action is written. You have to act the word without speaking and others should guess it. Sometimes it is possible to act the syllables of the word or mention the related words to be used as a clue to help the players guess it.
